The Great Waterway Survey

Dear Partners – The Great Waterway is exploring ways to provide online internet training to help our tourism businesses market their businesses, products and services better.  This training will live on our industry website and will be available 24/7 on a wide range of internet topics.

In order to best assess the needs of our tourism businesses we have prepared a very brief survey to be completed by our small to medium sized tourism businesses (less than 50 employees).  We need your help in getting this message out including this invitation to participate in the survey.

Please forward the following survey link to your tourism networks as soon as possible.  The survey is now open and will close on January 24 -  your help in spreading the word is appreciated!

The link is:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DLPQK9Z

Thank you,
Bonnie Ruddock
Project Manager
